Library Card Sign-Up Month
Sep 1 – Sep 30 all-day
Library Card Sign-Up Month

Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Idina Menzel and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel, will serve as honorary chairs of Library Card Sign-Up Month 2022.

As honorary chairs, Idina and Cara will remind everyone that one of the best places to find your voice is at the library. And during Library Card Sign-Up Month, they want you to explore all the library has to offer, like new children’s books, access to technology, and educational programming.

During the month of September, sign up for an Idaho Falls Public Library card—or bring someone with you to sign up—and you will be entered into a drawing to win a Kindle Fire!

Entries for the drawings are available (and must be submitted) at our second-floor desk. Drawings will take place during the first week of October. Winners will be notified individually.


For more information about Idaho Falls Public Library cards, visit our library card page.

For more information about the drawings, send us a message online or call 208-612-8460.
